Subtle Transfigurations of the Representation

homely crowd


only moving together
not much stamp

the final element of its jaunty
kesh-thad lake
in hats of pale blue and olive
(bowlers) "floating"

the rower is dressed in something like a suit
of plastic salmon eggs
and the boat is black

there is a plain sign
almost Monty Pythonesque

it doesn't read
and you can't see the tri-pod

it says
and all those hats
floating like molecules

or a quango
of differing dimmits

homely crowd
